Alison Schuback, 2008

In 1997, a severe car accident left Alison Schuback with a traumatic brain injury that confined her to a wheelchair, but the injury was merely a setback. In 2002, Schuback invented Invisibib--a washable, transparent bib for adults with disabilities. She launched a company around the invention; and in 2008 Inc. Magazine named her Entrepreneur of the Year for her work with the inspiring company. After appearing on PBS's "Everyday Edison's," Schuback formed a relationship with the Head Injury Association of America and today, the association helps with the distribution and marketing of the Invisibib to Schuback's fellow traumatic brain injury survivors.
